LITTLE ELM

Known as the “Town with a Lake Attitude,” Little Elm boasts miles of frontage to Lake Lewisville, one of the largest lakes in Texas.

WELCOME TO LITTLE ELM

 

Known as the “Town with a Lake Attitude,” Little Elm boasts miles of frontage to Lake Lewisville, one of the largest lakes in Texas. For those desiring a quieter and serene setting with an emphasis on outdoor recreational activities galore from its Little Elm Beach Park events to several walking trails along the lake, this city touts itself as offering families small town living but just a 10-15 minute drive to bigger city shopping and dining options in nearby Frisco and Plano. 


What to Love

  • You don’t have to own a boat to enjoy Lake Lewisville every summer by joining the Nautical Boat Club 
  • Stroll the shores of Lake Lewisville on the sandy beach at Little Elm Beach
  • Less hustle and bustle compared to nearby cities of Frisco and Plano


Local Lifestyle

With outdoor living such a large part of Little Elm living and 5 marinas, boating, fishing, camping, and swimming are enjoyed most months of the year.  Locals flock to the many community events that add to the small- town charm of this welcoming community.


Dining, Entertainment, and Shopping

Kids will love The Cove at the Lakefront, a 42,000 square foot indoor water park and event center to keep swimming available year-round. Try wakeboarding around a 5-acre lake at Hydrous Wakepark. Enjoy the many community events such as the Big Easy Crawfish Boil, 5k and 10k runs, the end of summer Last Luau with hula and fire dancers or the Lights on the Lake Christmas Tree Lighting and Parade. Dare to join everybody on the lake by renting anything from a waverunner or a party boat with a captain for a day on Lake Lewisville.  Rent a bike and travel 2.6 miles through the Johnny Broyles Nature Trail or rent a kayak or paddleboat through DFW Surf at Little Elm Beach.


Try a fusion of Hawaiian and Mexican food at Hula Hut, a restaurant on the lake with island vibes and beautiful lake views.  Savor great home style cooking at Leo’s Brunch House or Savory Kitchen & Bar’s chef inspired scratch kitchen.  Skip the restaurant crowds and bring a picnic lunch to the beach. 


With shopping galore located in nearby Frisco, Little Elm’s shopping is limited but if you would like to try authentic Mexican bakery items or food, La Azteca is a Mexican grocery store with a butcher shop and a small café offering Mexican plates. Kroger Marketplace is a large supermarket that includes home goods, clothing, and all the bells and whistles of a mega supermarket.


Things to Do

Any water related activity is available across over 60 miles of lake frontage, which is amazing, considering Little Elm is less than an hour drive to downtown Dallas.  Take a day, a weekend, or a full vacation soaking in the sun, the trails, the beach, or time on the lake.  If you need to break up your leisure time with shopping or extended dining options, your options are just a short drive away, but don’t forget that you leave behind the beauty of this town by the lake.
